“The suspense is intense, the plot is hot and the style is to die for. A thoroughly entertaining entry” in the Madison Night Mystery series (Catriona McPherson, Agatha Award–winning author).
When a rare five thousand dollar bill arrives in the mail, interior decorator Madison Night knows it’s a message from her past. In happier times, she once joked that she could be bought for $5000—how could she deny a bill with her name on it?
Suspecting the bill indicates trouble, she consults a numismatist. They set up a meet, but upon arrival she finds an abandoned office, a scared dog . . . and a dead body in the kitchen. The twist? The victim isn’t the numismatist; it’s a John Doe.
The police—led by Lt. Tex Allen—are on the case, but it’s Madison who discovers the victim’s identity. But where’s the numismatist? Before long, she uncovers a kidnapping plot, a unique counterfeit operation, and the true price of her own independence.
“A terrific mystery is always in fashion—and this one is sleek, chic and constantly surprising. Vallere’s smart styling and wry humor combine for a fresh and original page-turner.” —Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, Macavity and Mary Higgins Clark Award–winning author
“A fast-paced mystery with fab fashions, an appealing heroine, and a clever twist, That Touch of Ink is especially for fans of all things mid-century modern.” —Reader to Reader
